I am done having kids(tubal ligation etc.) and we eat healthy etc........... do you think it is really necessary to go for yearly female exams?  We have insurance so that isn't a factor.... I have never had an irregular pap etc.........

I've always gone every year but I have considered going every other year. I have never had a irregular pap either.

i only go when needed, and i think even if we eat healthy or stay fit, we still have 2 get checked out.

I get a physical every year, and since I've been married, my main doc has just been my OBGYN.

I don't know. I like it.

I like hearing I'm healthy. So I go. Even when I'm not pregnant or anything.

I've had irregular paps and dysplasia so I take no chances

Yes.  Even if you are done having kids and eat healthy, I think it's important.  Eating healthy doesn't always mean that there can't possibly be anything wrong with us.  Also, if you have insurance then use it!

WIth my normal one this year I won't have to get one for another 3 years.  I still have to see my dr yearly to get my pill refill.  But for the next few years it should be pretty pleasant.  I think that this is their new normal.  At least in PA.
